I get into a huge rant when i see some japanese guy drinking it, and give them a lesson on real beer. Plus, it is shocking how in Japan if you drink beer you are seen as 'oyaji' (old man), i mean, come on, beer is the guys drink. Guys in there 20s drinking Chu-hai also makes me sick
Well what do you expect, despite low taxes on alcohol beer is disgustingly expensive in most places eh. Especially draught beer; we charged $8 a glass at the hotel I worked at.
